Highlander season four includes some of the best episodes in the entire show, including two directed by Adrian Paul, the excellent "Homeland" and the wonderfully mysterious "Methuselah's Gift". It also includes the two-part Methos episodes, "Chivalry", and what is arguably the greatest episode of the show, "Timeless" (easily my favorite).
This season features more violence, sex (including some Adrian Paul rear nudity for you ladies), and is much more grim than the other seasons. All in all, though, it's one of the best and most important seasons in the show. [9/10]
Season four has some nice video, although in "Homeland" some grain is very apparent and the picture is quite dark. All the episodes are, once again, presented in their original full frame format. [8/10]
Season four has the same problems as the other seasons as far as audio goes. The remixes sound great, but at many times the music is blaring (although during the opening sequence, I can't say this is bad). It would be nice if Anchor Bay could fix this problem. [9/10]
Highlander season four, like the previous two seasons, is loaded with special features. Watcher Chronicles, interviews, some neat deleted scenes and even some bloopers. There's enough here to keep any Highlander fan entertained for months. Outstanding. [10/10]
Overall, Highlander season four is another great Anchor Bay DVD. They have no rival, no company can be their equal, take me to the future of their work ...
OVERALL SCORE: [9/10]
